Becoming a mom is a beautiful journey, but preparing for all the eventualities physically and mentally can be scary and confusing.
In this episode of the Jōrni Podcast, you get to hear from New Mommy Guru, Kristen O'Dell, a board-certified Family Nurse Practitioner, to discover motherhood and mental health.
Kristen helps pregnant women learn about postpartum depression and anxiety before their baby is born so they can best recognize it if it happens and get help quickly.
Kristen O’Dell is a board certified Family Nurse Practitioner with over 17 years experience working with newborns and their families in the NICU and Well Baby Nursery. She has taken care of over 10,000 infants, attended more than 5,000 deliveries, many of those c-sections and she has helped an estimated 8,000+ Moms and babies get through those first crucial days of breastfeeding.
She specializes in the first month of life but also has expertise in pregnancy,
labor, breastfeeding, and the first year of life. While trained in Western medicine at Columbia University, and currently working in a hospital, she takes an integrative holistic approach to wellness and really listens to her patients. Kristen is also an ACE Certified Health Coach and has a certificate in legal nurse consulting.
On a personal note, Kristen and her husband, Jay, have 3 young boys and live in the Hudson Valley, NY. You can often find them spending time at and eating treats at their Ice Cream Shoppe in Highland Falls, NY. Kristen’s hobbies include knitting, stand up paddle boarding, lake life, hiking, and going to the beach.
